Melanson Heath:  A Season of Giving

After a successful Thanksgiving food drive, Melanson Heath & Co. employees set their sights on aiding local charitable drives raise toys for children in need.

For the third year, the Nashua office partook in a toy drive organized by the New Hampshire Society of CPA’s Young Professionals Committee.  Melanson Heath & Co., along with other New England accounting firms, helped collect over 350 toys for WMUR’s ‘Spirit of Giving’ toy drive.

WMUR’s goal, through their ‘Spirit of Giving’ toy drive, was to collect 3,000 toys throughout the holiday season. Thanks to donations from individuals and companies like Melanson Heath & Co., they exceeded their initial goal with over 2,500 toys dropped off in Manchester, as well as Portsmouth. Monetary donations were also included in the drive with over $5,000 being raised.

Our Manchester office continued the tradition of donating to the “Our Kids’ Tower Of Toys.” Manchester employees, along with several donations from the Nashua office, collected dozens of toys; board games, baseball equipment, dolls and other items were placed under the festive lights of the company Christmas tree before being dropped off at the Atrium of the Beacon Building on Elm Street in Manchester.

Every year, the Beacon Building hosts a celebration concluding the fundraiser. The toy drive is followed by live music, appetizers and drinks.  This year, Our Kids’ Tower Of Toys benefited Challenger Sports NH and Girls, Inc.  We look forward to contributing to both causes again next year.

 

We hope you had a wonderful holiday season!  With tax season just around the corner, we thank you for choosing Melanson Heath & Co. for all your accounting needs!
